I have just studied in a grammar book that " a large number of compound nouns are built up with the help of suffixes and prefixes. The prefixes may be added to: verbs.
Now, my question is the following: are the words abolishion. acceptance, accusation, etc compound nouns?
As far as I know, compound nouns are built up of two or more parts/words.
eg. butterfly, redhead, upgrowth, heavyweight, outlaw, income, outcome, downpour, downbreak, etc
